Here's another shot from that awesome sunrise session at the Saarschleife in Germany last week. Amazing tones and colors in the sky got me this dramatic shot!
I am going to make blog posts like this more often. Single images. Images that don't need a ton of words describing what it is you are seeing. Simple and pure.
This morning we finally had some rain, after a few very dry and warm days. I was so happy it rained and cooled down a bit. On my way to work I spotted this forest with some nice looking fog in it. You know I can't resist such things. Parked the car, walked into the forest and snapped some shots (with my phone) Here are the results!
I didn't expect to get away with a decent shot yesterday evening. Because I arrived to this local spot a little bit to late. Right after sunset. I though all color and detail in the sky was gone by the time I was there.
Rushing out of the car getting all my gear ready, I didn't even look up the sky that much. Because I was, yeah rushing myself. As soon when I had me gear ready to go I started walking towards the waterfront, and actually really came to a sudden halt. Wow!!
How wrong was I? There was still quite some drama up in the sky! This fine image is the result of my amazement and awe admiration for gorgeous sunsets during sunset. Or in this case, a little bit after, haha.
Tech: Nikon D500 & Nikon 17-55mm F2.8 ED DX
I am an idiot. But sometimes its nice to be an idiot.
So I went out to shoot some landscape and sunset shots last night, at the Strabrechtse Heide. Very cool, all good. Only to forget how big this natural heath land is.
So the entire distance that I had walked from where I had parked my car needed to be covered again. I am talking quite some kilometers here. And all in the dark. Now, walking our hiking in the dark is no issue. But at this place it gets DARK!!
Trust me, hiking this place in the dark was no joke. It got my adrenaline levels right up, because there's wild boars, wild Highland cattle probably not super happy with me strolling through their habitat during breeding season. While I am actually also managing to find my way back in the pitch black forest.
But hey, that's my dose of adventure for this week! Haha... But let me tell you, I was quite happy to make it out of the forest a bit faster then usual this time...

Thanks again for looking at my work, it means a lot to me. Feel free to comment and share.
The temperatures are rising again, the trees and flowers are turning green and colorful again. People awake from their winter sleep and head out into nature. As much as I love the winter, Spring is always welcome. I just love the seasons, as they pass. They all bring their own beautiful assets to the table.
Therefore my wife and I decided it was time for a little bit of outdoor fun today. And we drove down to the south of the province that we live in (Limburg) To the town and area around Gulpen. Its so gorgeous. Super green, nice hills (which are rare in The Netherlands) and we just had the best weather for a decent hike. Below are some shots from our day in Gulpen, check them out. And if you ever are in the area be sure to make your way outside of the town for a bit, to get a amazing panoramic view over the town
*All shots in this blogpost were shot on my Iphone 8 and edited with the VSCO photo editor.
Do you know that feeling, when scrolling through your older work, and feel like you could've done a better job at processing and editing some of that work? Well I do. I very often stumble upon old shots that I first thought to be not good enough to make it as a upload. Anywhere. Actually some of them I have completely ignored after taking them. Thinking they were no good. Just leaving them on my harddrive, taking up space. Never to be shown to the world.
For this particulate reason I like to dive into some folders on my pc with old shots. And so I did last night. Norway. October. 2014. A super amazing trip (I got married during this trip) where I shot a ton of decent material. But there's just so much photographs never being looked at the way I did last night... After playing around with editing a few of them I was quite happy with the selection shown below.
Let me know what you think of these shots! Do you have old and untouched shots laying around? You know what to do!!
These shots were taken in Ersfjordbotn, Tromvik, Rekvik, Grøtfjord and Sommarøy. All located just outside of Tromsø

Vandaag in "mijn" Kessel wezen fotograferen, en wel: een hele mooie expositie met allerlei beeldmateriaal uit en rondom het prachtige Kessel, waar ik geboren en opgegroeid ben. "Romantisch Kessel, hoe het was en is..." is een expositie met beeldmateriaal van toen en nu. Denk aan foto's, schilderijen, films, archeologische vondsten en een mooie maquette (die mijn Opa, Piet van Nunen vroeger nog gemaakt heeft).
Als echte Kesselse vond ik het een hele eer om deze mooie expositie vast te mogen leggen in het prachtige Kasteel de Keverberg. Ik heb gefotografeerd, maar ook een kort filmpje gemaakt.
Delen van het filmpje, de foto's of deze gehele webpagina wordt op prijs gesteld! (wel graag met vermelding)
Afgelopen maandag heb ik voor Ria Joosten Catering & Evenementen een hele mooie opening en een bedrijfsjubileum mogen fotograferen bij Kemie - Keukenbladen in Helmond. Zoals de naam al doet vermoeden kun je bij Ria Joosten terecht voor de organisatie of catering van je congres, personeelsfeest, opening, jubileum, bruiloft, avondje uit of een babyborrel.
Ria Joosten is gevestigd in Neer, Midden-Limburg en al sinds jaar en dag een begrip in heel Limburg. Zeg je catering, dan zeg je Ria Joosten!
Smaak, sfeer & meer, dat is het motto van Ria Joosten, en zeg nu zelf. Als je deze foto's ziet is dat wat er enorm vanaf spat! Het team dat aanwezig was in Helmond wist de perfecte combinatie te vinden van kei hard werken, super gastvrij te zijn en heel erg lekker eten te bereiden voor de gasten. Echte professionals aan het werk. Het was dan ook een genot om hier als fotograaf aanwezig te mogen zijn en dit evenement vast te mogen leggen. Hier een aantal foto's van de zeer geslaagde avond.
I have been playing around with creating my own presets for Lightroom. This preset actually comes from another preset that I recently made. Have you seen the blog post about the band shoot I had with the guys in Probation? Yes? Noticed the tones, and the look of those shots. Now take a look at these. Right! It basically is the same preset. I have only tweaked it a little bit to just fit a little bit better for landscape/outdoor shots.
As I was fooling around with the preset I applied it on some older shots. These shots were taken on a dayytip to Germany back in Januari. What do you think? Do you think it works?
What kind of look and tone would you give these shots? Let me know in the comment section below. Also, I am giving away this preset for free. All you have to do is send me message on facebook and share this post on social media!
